December 21 Pearl

December 21

Today’s attribute of God is Everlasting:

Lord through all the generations you have been our home! Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth and the world, from beginning to end, you are God. You turn people back to dust, saying, “Return to dust, you mortals!” Psalm 90: 1-3

The Lord was here before the world began. He was here before we were and will be there when we take our last breath.

I get many opportunities to be with people when they take their last breath. I have experienced many requests in those last days of life. Today I had the privilege of giving someone a drink of water.

This particular patient had a swallowing problem and had not been able to have a drink or eat in the last weeks. It was an awesome feeling to get to offer her some ice water.

You could tell she was dry and parched. This is how it is when we have been to busy to spend time with the Lord. Eventually we find our souls parched.

My pearl today is the deep security of being connected to our Everlasting God. We can always get refreshed with time out with The Lord.
